So I just found out that Victoria will be in a State of Emergency for possibly 12 more months Normally this period lasts for about six months. But due to the nature of this pandemic the Victorian Government wants to extend it but the extension needs to be approved. This will mean that businesses will have to operate under a Covid normal and people will have to wear face masks. Also people will have to work from home. This is devasting news for businesses and local tourism. But this week I backed local businesses and bought a face mask and a few other items from them
.This week we had chicken curry, fish and some of the snacks that a company called Snack Proud sent us. And we tried to ration the the 1 L of milks that is left in the fridge. The chicken schnitzel was from our freezer
This week I received a letter from a debt collections agency in NSW. No matter the amount, the agencies in other parts of Australia forget that we are in a different place to them. They forget that we are experiencing a lot of stress due to the pandemic. About 28% more Victorians experienced this type of stress compared with last year. There was a survey done by Melbourne Uni on this. A lot of businesses are feeling the stress of COVID 19 now.
On Friday and the weekend it was a really sunny day and I enjoyed having my rocket from the garden as well the salmon from the freezer.
Total spent this week: Chemist Warehouse: $20, The Boathouse : $4, Optus: $5, The organically wherehouse: $4, Cafe Istanbul: $6. Altogether it was $39.
